Impeachment proceedings provide civic learning opportunities

As coverage of the impeachment hearings dominate the news cycles, teachers may find a rich opportunity to help students better understand the powers of both houses of Congress as well as the steps and constitutionality of the impeachment process. This detailed description of the impeachment process from Cornell University's Legal Information Institute is a great classroom resource to supplement Foundations in Law, Unit 1: Human Nature, Rules, and Power or Unit 2: The Legal System in Action.
